Matcha Madness

Perisha Kudhail sees green with delicious Matcha treats at CHA.ology

By

Matcha has come to Manchester! Joanne Lee, the founder of CHA.ology has revolutionised this tea-loving nation by working her magic with tea in the form of baked goods. From her Matcha Tiramisu to her Matcha Cream roll, this upcoming baker is cooking up a storm.

Matcha is the fine ground powder of green tea leaves, and Joanne uses only the finest. Imported from Uji, Japan, to ensure the taste of freshness and stamp a mark of quality on all CHA.logy products, Matcha is a running ingredient throughout CHA.ology’s selection continues to expand in order to bring the taste of Japan to familiar treats and sweets here in Manchester. With CHA meaning tea, CHA.ology experiments with other tea flavours to complement the matcha and help our taste buds experience tea heaven. Joanne has experimented from the heart of her own quirky kitchen to deliver immaculately packed goods and hopes to bring this relaxed vibe to her tea house in the New Year.

Joanne Lee has worked her magic on lots of delicious classics, using tea as the foundation for flavour. These are just a few of many products which are favorited by CHA.ology customers.

The Matcha White Chocolate Tart has quickly become adored by CHA.ology regulars. This elegant tart has matcha and white chocolate ganache alongside a lovingly baked shortcrust pastry. Joanne recommends this delight to be eaten at room temperature to retain the creamy texture of the filling. A great indulgence.
